PostHeaderIcon Engineers Week at Marsh’s Library

On February 26th, Ms. Mc Donagh’s 4th class took part in an event to mark Engineers Week at Marsh’s Library. The children got to tackle ten different engineering stations in small teams leading through the library. They were challenged in construction, mechanisms, simple circuits and forces. They also tried to identify mystery objects to gain bonus points.

It was a really interesting and enjoyable day and we learned lots, both about engineering and the library itself. Did you know that an Irish engineer, John Philip Holland designed the first submarine?

Check out the slideshow to see some of the challenges that the children faced.

On Pancake Tuesday Ms. Downey’s boys and girls listened to the story of The Big Pancake and they knew it wasn’t a good idea for the pancake to take a ride across the river on the pig’s back : Yum! Yum!

They said the rhyme Mix a Pancake. Then it was time to flip a pancake:

decorate a pancake:

and finally eat a pancake!

Yum! Yum! Such fun

Today 5th class participated in a  Physical Activity study with the help of Ben, Roisin and Christine from DCU! They assessed our height, weight, fitness level, muscular strength, blood pressure and waist circumference. We also completed an in-depth questionnaire on physical activity and how often we engage in it during a week. Check out some of the photos and huge thanks to Ben, Roisin and Christine for asking us to participate in their research!
